Dedicated Peggy Piggott is absorbed in her work as she pores over fascinating artefacts from Britain’s rich ancient past. But this picture of serious professionalism is not one viewers of Netflix ’s hit film The Dig will recognise. Instead of being portrayed as an experienced and skilled archaeologist, Peggy is played by Lily James as a clumsy sidekick and the romantic interest of a dashing photographer about to go to war. The Dig won rave reviews for its portrayal of the true story of the 1939 Sutton Hoo excavation of a 90ft Anglo-Saxon ship and Britain’s greatest treasure find. But experts believe film-makers failed to unearth the truth about confident and well-respected Peggy, whose celebrated career spanned six decades. What is your view? Have your say in the comments section They have also faced accusations of ageism for casting 35-year-old Carey Mulligan to play Edith Pretty , who was 56 when the Anglo-Saxon hoard was found on her land near Woodbridge, … [Read more...] about Real story behind Netflix’s The Dig as it portrays top archaeologist as ‘ditzy’

"I lost touch with my family five years ago; I only learned of my father's death one year later," a teary-eyed Abdüsükür tells DW. The 32-year-old is based in Istanbul's Zeytinburnu neighborhood, where most of the city's Uighur immigrants live and work. He earns a living working in a secondhand shop for mobile phones. Abdüsükür is one of approximately 50,000 Uighurs who have recently fled China seeking safety in Turkey . The Chinese government has been persecuting the ethnic minority, with witnesses reporting that Uighurs have been detained in inhumane conditions in reeducation camps. Many of them, including minors, are picked up and deported without warning. Abdüsükür fled China's northwestern Xinjiang province five years ago.

For them, only "biological sex" does. In their opinion, allowing trans women into single-sex spaces would endanger cisgender women. Many of them also believe that legally recognizing gender self-determination, a legal gender change without a medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria, would allow rapists to escape punishment. Enrique Anarte It is important to highlight that the public debate is finally taking women's concerns into account. Until very recently, patriarchal structures had … [Read more...] about Opinion: On trans rights, journalists must stand with the facts
